What is a regular day like in the life of Karan Johar?
Honestly, my routine is not as dramatic as my films, though I’d love for it to be! I love working so a large part of my day goes into meetings, brainstorms, and working lunches if I am in town and not shooting. If I am on set, then that’s a different ball game altogether, with packed schedules, and long working hours. Other than that, I make sure beyond work, I spend quality time with my kids, my mom, and my close friends.
What’s the secret behind your ageless looks? What diet regimen do you follow to look so fit and young?
I must admit, I have the worst metabolism and for almost thirty years of my life, I didn’t take my eating habits very seriously. But ever since my kids came along, I felt the need to be more conscious about what I consume. I try to keep my diet balanced, have smaller portions, and avoid sugar and carbs. That, along with my workout sessions helps in keeping me in shape!
What do you have for breakfast on most days of the week?
Over the last couple of years, I have been following a balanced nutritious diet, so I keep my breakfast healthy – but with a hint of drama. As my dear friend Farah Khan said when I was relishing my breakfast of chocolate oats mousse on set recently. Well, jokes apart, it’s usually some fruits & eggs.
Tell us about your association with KFC?
What could be better than something which brings together my two loves in life – drama & food? I never thought that something could top the emotions and drama of my films. But just a bite of the flavorful KFC Popcorn Nachos, I realized yeh snack nahi, drama hai! And hence the association!
Do you cook? What is your favorite food?
I don’t particularly enjoy cooking, but I’m a big foodie! And being a Punjabi at heart, I never leave a chance to feast on Rajma Chawla and Aloo Parantha. I also love European cuisine – my travels to Italy, Paris, London, and other cities introduced me to some amazing food experiences and have a special place in my heart. From time to time, I love treating myself to a good bowl of ice cream, and Indian desserts like Barfi, Kaju Katli, and Fried Chicken.
